I hope each of you were able to find some extra time to take care of yourself, your family and those in “your circle” during the break. Each holiday season I’m reminded how important it is to slow down and enjoy the people in our lives who we don’t see often enough! Although we had some days off last month it was filled with many positive events here at Tumalo School. We started November with an amazing Grandparents and Special Friends Day that brought over 230 grandparents and special friends to our building. November brought parent conferences, classroom visits from local Veterans, field trips, culminations and Thanksgiving food baskets with complete meals to 11 of our families. This year we were able to add a bouquet of flowers to our Thanksgiving food baskets as Trader Joes donated flowers. In addition, we had our 2nd Dads and Dudes Breakfast of the year where we had over 100 dad’s, dudes and kids attend. These events tie into our school beliefs, strengthen our community connections and help create well-rounded young people. Special thanks to the Tumalo staff, Tumalo PTC and community members for helping make these events a huge success!
